    Winemaker Notes

    The wine has a characteristic bouquet with overtones of white flowers, white and yellow fruit and a slight spicy note. Complex and very elegant. On the palate, it is full- bodied, vigorous and mineral with a fine aromatic freshness. A delicate wine, it has a long finish and a certain underlying robustness. Its style may be described as between a classic Meursault and a typical Puligny-Montrachet.

    Great with fish (grilled or with a light sauce) and white meats.

    "Javillier is a passionate seeker after truth (or, in this case, perfection) working each barrel differently in a constant series of trials to see what works best. He has little in the way of grand land, but he is a real master."—Clive Coates

    No one else can take you for a walk through Meursault like Patrick Javillier. Tasting through his wines with him requires the utmost concentration. No flip little asides like, "C'est bon," are going to fly with this perfectionist. He has lived with every wine intimately, thought it through, and conducted every imaginable experiment with each one to extract its absolute essense.

    Meursault growers are blessed with a lower water table than Puligny, for example, so their wine cellars are deeper. Deeper means cooler, cooler means longer fermentations and more complete, integrated wine.

    Known to offer a magical balance of smoothness and freshness, Meursault's quality is hard to rival. The village lies in the middle of Côte de Beaune, just south of Volnay. Meursault is said to mean “mouse’s jump” because in the past the plots producing Pinot noir and those producing Chardonnay were no more than a mouse’s jump from one another. Today the village is almost exclusively Chardonnay. A tiny bit of Pinot noir is produced here with the best coming from Les Santenots on its northern side near Volnay.

    While there are no Grands Crus, Meursault’s numerous acclaimed Premiers Crus can compete with any other top-notch white Burgundy. Some to know are Les Perrières, Les Genevrières, Les Charmes, Le Poruzot, Les Bouchères and Les Gouttes d’Or.

    Meursault produces outstanding village level wines as well. In general great Premiers Crus and even village level Meursault (Chardonnay) have enticing aromas of lime peel, tropical fruit, crushed rocks, spice and hazelnut. On the palate there is a wonderful balance of brightness and a seductive length with flavors of white peach, pineapple and citrus.

    One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
